Yeah, the taxes thing..... interesting issue.
Why are they paying taxes? Because they are here posing as a legal immigrant or a citizen. If they just "kept a low profile" and were paid under the table, they wouldn't be paying taxes right?
And as for the kids.... victims of their parent's reckless decision to come here illegally, so now, depending on how you look at it, the parents are using the kid to be able to stay here, or, the parents are risking (I suppose) being deported themselves, and having the kids stay here in foster care?
Not sure how that works.
